Great food and good service—we enjoyed our lunch at Taverna de los Frailes. My ceviche was outstanding. If you visit, be ready for large servings.

This is a very nice restaurant. More pricy than what we usually do, but it was our anniversary and we splurged a little. As always, I asked the waiter which items he likes best and if it sounds like something I would like, I go for it. I can remember the name (Mayan words) but it was the first item... More

We had the local Valladolid sausage and a shrimp trio, both were OK, not amazing. As others have noted the portions are on the smaller side but not tiny. What made it good though was the staff and the outdoor dining. For two drinks and two entrees it was $30 US.

We checked the menu before we went for dinner. The food did not meet our expectations. It was nothing special but the price was high.

We have been here the last 2 years we have visited Valladolid so it was definitely on our list for this year. We went for dinner and were not disappointed at all. 5 of the 6 people at the table ordered the fish. It came 2 different ways and each one was excellent. I on the other hand ordered the... More

Located behind the convent San Bernadino, the restaurant is set within a palapa inside the courtyard of a large building. Food is pricier than many others in the city and they don't serve any free appetizers but is tasty and the atmosphere pleasant. An appetizer of three kebabs of shrimp, chicken and pork filled me at lunch. My husband had... More

Taberna de Los Frailes was our favorite restaurant in Vallodolid. All of the food was delicious, but the grilled watermelon appetizer was especially memorable. We look forward to returning.

Lovely elegant setting in an old (meaning 1500's) building which must have been part of the church complex. My fish was just barely done as I like, fresh, and perfectly seasoned. D. sent his order back to the kitchen to be cooked more.

Unfortunately food and price do not match here. Dishes are very small and the taste wasn't as good as we expected with these prices. Also my sister's guacamole tasted like it had gone bad, we gave feedback about it but nothing was said or done. If you wanna have good value for your money, choose another place.
